Finding the Connection

The thought drifts slowly through my mind,
softly on silver wings,
Moving like a ghost through mist
on a cold, gray day,
Its gossamer tendrils entangle me,
wrap me in knowing
that I am connected,
that I am bound to this earth,
This Place of my being,
and all that happens to her,
happens to me,
and with the horror of this knowing—I  gasp!
And with the joy of this knowing—
I fly.

Morning on the Bay

Mere Point Bay, Brunswick, ME March 2014
The silver bay is flecked with gray, then blushes a soft pink,
The shining sun has just begun to rise above the drink,
And so the morning softly comes upon the silver bay,
And all the birds burst into song to welcome the new day.
